No spoilers, but Ben Kingsley is A JOY.
Saw it at Greenwich Picturehouse. Not as good as Avengers Assemble, but better than Iron Man 2. ‘Nuff said.

I especially liked the Paris years, between 1921 and 1937. The portrait of Lee Miller (above) is from this period.
Co-organised by The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern, this is a retrospective of 125 of Lichtenstein’s most definitive paintings and sculptures.
Iria Candela, the co-curator of the exhibition, has a fascinating post on the Tate blog about preparing the show.
“Working on this exhibition took four years of preparation – extensive research followed by curatorial travel and loan negotiations to be able to secure many works that are kept in private collections, some of which have never been publicly seen. I look forward to hearing your comments and impressions and to share more stories with you throughout the duration of the show.”
At Tate Modern until 27 May 2013. Tickets £15.50.
My favourite pieces were the black and white palettes in Room 3.
To London Zoo – a birthday treat to meet Ricky the Rockhopper Penguin, whom I’ve been “given” for my birthday. He’s a proper diva.
You too can adopt Ricky – find out more here.
Terence Rattigan’s The Winslow Boy, at the Old Vic.
Nice productions (and nice re-use of the Hedda Gabler set). Suitably stilted for the Edwardian morals, with Naomi Frederick as the sister Catherine Winslow the stand out for me.
